Street Heat: Bon Jovi

April 02 2010
Rock star to visit shelters and day centres

Jon Bon Jovi is taking time out of his latest tour to visit shelters and day centre programmes, as part of a "fact-finding mission" for his Soul Foundation, according to the Associated Press.

The charity attempts to fight homelessness by building affordable housing and establishing community kitchens.

The rock star said: "I've spent the last quarter of a century touring, going from arena-stadium to hotel back to arena-stadium-hotel. This time, because of my foundation's work over the last six years building affordable housing, on my days off and when the opportunity arises [..] I will go do shelters and try to learn more about the issue and how to combat it."
